    I worked at GardaWorld full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    easily get hired, the branch personnel as a whole welcomed new hires. Some of the employees that had been there a while were resistant.

    Cons

    Pay sucked for the risk that a person assumed. OT only after 50hrs/week, not 40hrs!!
    Very long days of at least 11-14hrs/day.

    Advice to Management

    convince upper management that the hourly wage needs to be increased!! Otherwise the revolving door will continue.

    Pros

    Monday thru Friday , no nights

    Cons

    Low pay and infrequent raises

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management would be to talk to your employees having meetings . Management only talk to the Leads and they aren't very truthful . Give raises according to their work performance and make sure the work is spread evenly. Their people their who come in everyday and do their jobs and stay in their assigned area but it seems that's not respected by management.

    Pros

    Company is marketed as "WORLD CLASS"

    Cons

    Lack of Direction and Communication. Does not value quality talent and experience. Likes to make assumptions with out verifying. Takes vendors for granted by extremely slow pay. Rehires employees marked ineligible for re-hire. No established policies or procedures, yet tend to hold accountable for the "issue" of the day. Lack of pay increases and reviews. When an individual performance review is given, group comments are noted. To sum it uo, company is marketed as "WORLD CLASS" with third class leadership and business skills from the top.

    Advice to Management

    Establish policies and procedures for ALL departments. Establish continuity between ALL departments. (ie sales, ops and fleet) to ensure a profitability. Establish reliability with vendors and staff.
